Analyst: Apple tablet said in ‘full production’

“Apple is already in full swing manufacturing its tablet device, analyst Matt Thornton at AVI Securities said in a note on Friday,” Electronista reports.

“Talking to a component supplier, he says the parts have been in the supply chain for some time but that the finished products are now in ‘full production’ for release soon,” Electronista reports.

“The iPhone designer had supposedly planned to start assembly late in 2009 but encountered a delay that impacted some suppliers who had expected the increased business,” Electronista reports.

  1. C’mon Rike, “analysts” don’t need to cite sources. They make up crap, claim to have sources, or just say what they think. When they are wrong, it’s no big deal to them. It’s kind of like a weatherman. They are wrong about 75% of the time, but it doesn’t matter. The only difference is that a weatherman is using some sort of scientific calculation to make their predictions.

  2. I heard a rumour that the release version of the iSlate has been selling for over a month. Customers are bound by non-discoosure agreements. Rumour has it that sales are brisk and reviews are excellent.

  3. I and my coworkers each have one. The tablet gives the user cosmic awareness, invulnerability, super strength, flight, power over all things, mental telepathy and telekinesis, intangibility, invisibility, eternal life, and magic.

    Okay – but I’m not getting one if it doesn’t come with a matte screen!

  5. Hope it comes out better than the new iMacs. Come on MDN, how about some reporting on the ongoing dramas people are having with 3, 4, 5 replacement units!! The lack of coverage of this problem is outrageous.

  6. I have no plans on getting an Apple tablet, what would I use it for?

    But then I said the same thing when Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone. Boy was I wrong!
